Ryder is UFA at the end of this season and 2nd scorer in Dallas. We also saved 1m on the cap for this season.

Good trade IMO

Really not sure what to think about this.

Cap wise it makes sense. Talent wise? Not sure.

Who cares if you hated Ryder or not...the guy's done at the end of the year. And if we sign him back...it will mean he's lights out till the end of the year.

I say....good deal.
That's what smart GM's do. Not like the clown that signed him to that ridiculous deal.

Cole wanted out we did him a favor

Ryder was brought in to increase the locker room IQ

Agreed, good deal, same offensive production, UFA at the end of the year, Cole's contract off the books, that's huge

Always liked Ryder I always thought we should have resigned him. After one bad season he was let go, another one of Gainey's brilliant moves letting stars hit the free agency and getting nothing in return. Cole was most likely going to retire after this season and was coasting out there I like this move.

Wow...all this complaining about Cole was fine for me, but deep down I was happy to have him, and felt like hes gonna contribute eventually with many goals, and his quick acceleration and drive to the net.

That's a possibility. But why? Why did he want to move? I guess we'll have our answers soon enough...

Why does everyone hate Ryder?

Good trade IMO. Get rid of Coles contract and Ryder is playing better hockey this year.

It's a very good trade. Give you space to spend money. Could help us fetch Perry.
